Local Salvation Army Majors honoured for their service to the community

Posted on: June 12, 2017

Town Councilor Jay Brennan presents Major Owen Rowsell and Major Sharon Rowsell of the Smiths Falls Salvation Army with a certificate of appreciation for their service to the community.

The Majors have been located in Smiths Falls for the past two years but have spent the last 39 years in ministry with the Salvation Army. They will officially retire July the 1st and will be relocating to St. Thomas to be close with family.

The couple will be sadly missed by the Mississippi Rideau Lake Corps and the families they have helped in Smiths Falls.

A celebration was held for them at the Salvation Army Church on June 10.  Church members, friends and family attended.
